Dem Triumphalism May Be Shortlived

So our Democrat president runs for reelection in a Democrat state primary and gets a bare majority of the vote?  In a closed primary ("a primary in which only registered members of a particular political party can vote") no less?


The Washington Post this morning provides analysis:
“This shows real dissatisfaction,” said Ben Odom, a political strategist and a former vice-chairman of [Oklahoma's] Democratic Party. “You had a pro-life activist and three people who didn’t mount a campaign get 44 percent of the vote. ... An incumbent president ought to be polling at least 80 percent, particularly against this kind of opposition.”
In other words, ANYONE-BUT-OBAMA took 2/5th of the state's Democrat-only primary vote.

Predictions of Republican Party demise are rife out there in liberal-land.

Keep thinkin' that, fellas. Keep thinkin' it.

Via Drudge: "Obama loses Dem primary in 15 Oklahoma counties."

Remember, this was a Democratic primary that was only open to registered Democrats.  And the Numero Uno Democrat in the land loses.

Tomorrow's headline from Obama's handlers: It was all Bush's fault.
